I’m sure we all remember our first night out with the girls. You’re a little nervous because you don’t know what a club will be like, you’re not sure if your dress is a little too revealing but I think most of all, you’re worried about your make-up. To be totally club – proof, your make-up has to survive a few hours of dancing in a crowded room with loud music and lots of people. It’s not going to be easy. So, here’s my top three foundations to wear and a few tips to keeping flawless for a good night out. I’m not a serial clubber but I do go out with my girls every now and then. By the way, that’s me and my beautiful food blogger friend, Adrienne, visit her yummylicious food blog at: http://www.adriennely.com/ It’s super useful if you’re wondering what to eat in Melbourne!
Top 3 Foundations:
1. Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse
I absolutely love this foundation because it makes you flawless, it takes your pores away and it is my go to foundation for a good night out. Plus, it’s easy to spread on if you’re going to press the foundation into the skin and is great for photographs because of its high coverage and ability to give you that beautiful complexion. It’s just easy to wear and it brings results. It however is not totally long lasting so if you think you’re going to Zouk Out in this, you might want to check out the other foundation suggestions. I would say wear this for any event you have to look good in photos with.

2. Australis Fresh & Flawless Liquid Foundation
I can’t say enough about this, and you can probably tell. At $12.95, it actually wears great for a night out dancing. It’s long lasting and stays light and flawless throughout the day and night. The only key thing is to blend fast. It dries to a semi-matte finish quicker than most foundations so if you are to wear it, use a paddle brush and in quick strokes apply your foundation. Overall, a great one for a long lasting and natural finish.
3. Revlon ColorStay Foundation for Combination/Oily Skin
I love this for nights out. It wins the award hands down for the foundation I have to blot least with because it’s so good with oil control! It is flawless and lasts the longest out of the other two foundations I’m recommending. So if you know it is going to be a long night, this is a pretty good pick. I swear on looking flawless still at 2am in the morning. The only downside to this I would say is that you can feel this foundation, meaning it’s a bit heavy. Just think an industrial strength foundation won’t come light and easy. The foundation has beautiful coverage as well.

Make-Up Tips for Nights Out:
1. Re-Do Your Make-up for the Night & Set with Powder
Even if you have your make-up on during the day, take it off and re-do it for the night. This will ensure that the make-up looks fresh for photos and will last longer. I get a lot of questions asking why the foundation doesn’t last and more often than not, I find out that you haven’t set with a powder. It is super important that you set your liquid foundation with a powder, even more than wearing a primer, because your liquid foundation will fo sho slip and slide if you don’t set your foundation with a powder. I love the Maybelline Dream Matte Powder for this purpose, must do!
2. Wear False Lashes or Contacts – Just have fun!
It’s night time, ditch those neutral looks and have a little fun. Go crazy smokey with some colorful contacts (I love wearing grey and my favorite are from Freshkon) and then pair it up with some hot looking false lashes. People don’t judge you when you’re out, just look hot and remember to have a little fun.
3. Bring touch-ups in your purse
It’s always important to bring a few back-ups just in case along with your I.D and money in your purse. I always drop a pencil liner, the lipstick I’m wearing that night, concealer and if I’m wearing falsies, eye-lash glue and contact lens eye-drops in case my eyes get a little dry. It’s cool to also bring one of those small tester vials of perfume, that might come in handy too!
